Job summary
Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Audible, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.
ABOUT THIS ROLE

ABOUT YOU

  • Break down a strategic opportunity area into tactics that can be tested and validated in an iterative way.
  • Prioritize tactics and trade-offs vis-à-vis short-term and longer-term strategic goals.
  • Use quantitative and qualitative data to validate success for new functionality, or to more deeply understand user behavior in order to iterate towards a successful test.
  • Roll up your sleeves and do whatever is necessary; general manager / owner mentality.

An Insider's view of Audible

What are some social events your company does?

Volunteering regularly is organic. It’s gratifying to help create opportunities for others and to know I share that common interest with the people I work with every day. I say it all the time, but it’s why I really love working here. Audible fosters and encourages contributing meaning beyond my day-to-day work. It’s in our company’s DNA.

Eliot

Senior Director, Tech Program Management

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re able to harness market-leading tools and datasets while benefiting from the employee experience made possible by Audible’s distinctive culture. To be able to employ cutting-edge machine learning technology with a mission is really unique. It’s a playground for us! Every day is a pretty unique opportunity; it doesn't happen everywhere.

Jiun

Director, Data Science

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

There is constant learning. Even with being here for 15 years, I’ve never felt bored, even for a single day. Every day I’m learning something new that keeps me going. I’ve been on the iOS team, Android team, the services side and now I’m leading the content publishing team. So, it’s end to end and always an opportunity to learn and grow.

Sailaja

Senior Director, Software Development

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

A collaborative culture like ours fosters productive conversations that enable our team to deliver new ideas faster. We go into meetings and have healthy debates with diverse, and sometimes strong, opinions. But we always think about what's right for the customer. Experimentation is critical. We have to move, fail, and innovate fast.

Sureshmi

VP, Product Management

How does the company support your career growth?

I’ve seen a lot of my colleagues shift from different roles within QA. Audible provides incredible opportunities for engineers to grow their skills, from soft skills through training to grow professionally. A lot of opportunities exist, and our mentorship program has really facilitated that.
